This is my first instructable so let me know how I do. Now before I continue I must give credit to eschmunk who posted the idea but no instructions and Noreen Crone-Findlay on youtube who had the video that showed me how to do the knitting part. Now that is out of the way lets start.

Step 1: what you need

For this project you will need:
* +-35ft of one color of paracord ( I started with 50ft but I had about 15ft left over because I felt that 50ft made the lanyard too long)
* a lighter (to melt the ends of the paracord so it wont unravel [caution when melting ends the molten paracord is very hot and can stick to skin causing 2nd degree burns so be careful])
* scissors
* a small screw driver (or any small pointed object) to lift cord.
* a key ring
* a circular object with three pegs, i used this screw-in for something that i found while rummaging through the garage, but you can use a napkin holder with three small nails lightly hammered in.
I used a wire hanger to set up the three prongs for this. it's much bulkier than I personally prefer for lanyards. but definitely strong and good quality.
I think you may have stumbled upon an excellent reuse project for those plastic devices that prevent pizza boxes from making contact with the toppings. Great nod to Stormdrane in step 4.
errrr... step 5.
sorry about step five, I was running out of time while finishing this instructable and i am very busy now with school starting, but as soon as i get the time i will update this instructable appropriately. thank you for your input and thanks for suggesting that you use those pizza devices, I will fix the rest of this and i have made a improved lanyard that is much more thin and better looking, Will be added as soon as i can. <br>Allen401
